in kiev. so we're awaiting the president. his advisers, secretary of state kerry, national security adviser susan rice, have said that -- have warned russia against intervention in the affairs of ukraine, but there's been no indication how the u.s. might respond to it. >> can you give us a sense of this resurfacing of viktor yanukovych, who surfaced. where did he surface and give us an idea of what the surroundings were around that? >> well, he resurfaced in moscow, eric. said he was still the legal leader, if you will, of ukraine, though that is definitely not the white house belief. he said that he had fled out of fear for his own safety and that of his family, and gave no indication he was prepared to abdicate, though officials here say he has done precisely that by leaving the country at a time of crisis. they say ukraine's parliament acted lawfully in electing a transition government. it's that government the u.s. is working with along with nato and the monetary fund to provide ukraine the money it needs to get through this period. and as far as the folks here are concerned, he
reached a fever pitch. as eric said. secretary of state john kerry is calling russia's move an incredible act of aggress and threatening it could lead to isolate from the rest of the international community. does putin care? steve, what's the latest from the beltway. >> strong words from democrats and republicans align, condemning russians. secretary of state john kerry saying that russia's moves represent an act of aggression that will bring national scorn, possibly resulting in sanctions and a boycott of the g-8 summit. kerry suggested putin is hurting himself, his country and his people. >> he is not going to gain by this. he may be able to have his troops for some period of time in crimea unless he resolves this, but the fact is he's going to lose on the international stage. russia is going to lose, the russian people are going to lose. he's going to lose all of the glow that came out of the olympics. >> russian troops have spread out across the crimean peninsula and there are fears they will continue to move into the rest of the ukraine. some republicans joined kerry, and are calling
of the president's leadership. >> the white house sent john kerry to meet the media this morning. he said russia might be kicked out of the g-8 alliance, we're going to try and isolate russia. lindsay graham on cnn was very critical of president obama. i just wonder, given that there are to be really honest about it limited military options for the u.s., just as when russia went into georgia during the bush presidency, whether it's just too easy for the pundits to say, well, let's grade president obama on how he's doing. >> yeah. i think we're in the stage now where everybody is sitting back and watching what the president is doing so they know how to criticize him. do they criticize him for talking too tough or not talking tough enough? do they criticize him for not taking action or taking action to distract from obamacare? there's going to be -- or from benghazi or whatever it is. there's going to be criticism even though we all pretty much accept that there's not a whole lot that the united states can do here. >> certainly, there will be critics that -- >> i'm not saying there shouldn't be cr
of the cold war. tomorrow, secretary of state john kerry is set to go to kiev where the crisis began. that's where we saw the deadly protests. the latest action is in crimea, a region along the black sea. strategically important and socially as well. it is important to russia because the russian navy has a base there. a warm water port here to the black sea. russian officials say they're trying to protect their citizens in the region, which is dubious to hear from many analysts. secretary of state called that a trumped up excuse. we have team fox coverage. wendell is live with reaction from the white house. first, let's get to eric shawn at the united nations. we're expecting a meeting to happen within the hour. right? >> yes, that meeting of the emergency meeting of the security council, 30 minutes from now here at the u.n. the third time the security council diplomats have gathered during the crisis. russia has called for the meeting so we'll have to see the implications of that. perhaps if it had to do with the supposed deadline. there's -- the ukrainian ambassador tells us there is a t
danger. secretary of state kerry reacted this way to putin. he is not going to be able to gain by. this he may have troops some period of time in crimea unless he resolves. this the fact is he is going to lose on the international stage. he that may find himself with asset freezes russian business. american business may call back there may be a further tumble of the ruble. there is a huge price to pay. >> but the only way russia will lose is if president obama moves quickly to punish that nation. the way to do that is to move against russian banks. last september, senator richard blumenthal of connecticut urged president obama to slap sanctions on russian banks because they were propping up the assad regime in syria. the president did not do that and assad is still killing innocent people today. but now mr. obama to do it. because that's the only way putin will pull back. the u.s.a. has to power, has the power to crush the russian currency the ruble which is already in trouble. freezing russian assets and boycotting russian banks would badly damage the russian currency. that's the

hope that they will. the cold war. >> john kerry said it's not another rocky iv. >> i thought it was -- the president's statement, this is not the chess match or the cold war. maybe it's not to the president and john kerry but it is to vladimir putin. he wants to rebuild the russian empire. that's why he pressures the baltic stakes and meddling in mullkova and troops are in georgia and he views ukraine as the crown jewel of that. there's an old loin about russia with ukraine is an empire, without it, it's a country. it's a vital part of his scenario for russia's role in the world, and we have to be vigorous in our response, and i think we can be, but first we got to realize who we're dealing with. >> senator john mccain, thank you very much. good seeing you again. >> thank you. >> signed up for obamacare and now desperately wants out of obamacare. but now he can't get out of obamacare. >> this educator makes more than the president and let's just say taxpayers didn't know about it. now they're furious. >> this is ridiculous. this is nuts. my wife -- i give my wife everything.
